The principal liturgical celebration of Good Friday (19th April) in St Fin Barre’s Cathedrall Cork this year will be held at 12 noon which will include the singing of the Passion Gospel according to SaintJohn by Peter Stobart, Director of Music.
At 8.00pm the Cathedral Choir will perform the oratorio The Crucifixion by John Stainer, with soloists Owen Gilhooly (Tenor), Ben Jacob (Bass), Phoebe Chow (Organ) under the baton of Director of Music, Peter Stobart.
The ‘congregation’/‘audience’ join in singing the hymns during the performance. It is hoped that this will provide a more accessible means of observing Good Friday to a wider audience in the city.
This being a ‘liturgical performance’ there is no admission charge. Donations are welcome via a retiring collection on the night.
